Last week Tiptoe Mom requested an applique of a beehive, so tah dah, here it is. It is my plan to add at least 1 applique a week to the blog, hopefully building an impressive collection for many different crafters. If there is an applique you would like to see included… sooner rather than later… just leave us a comment or email us and we’ll gladly give it a try.
In the meantime, here is our beehive with 3 very busy bees. Of course it would also be cute to add bumble bee buttons instead of the felt ones. And, you can always use woven fabric instead of the felt. If you do, add 1/4″ around the outside of the design before cutting out the fabric. You will then be able to turn under the fabric before appliqueing it to your project.
This applique was designed for a 6″ x 6″ block but can be reduced or enlarged to meet your needs. The pattern is available here. Enjoy!
